Scope New York 2010 March 3-7, 2010
The Sweet Shop by Pratima Naithani
Agró/Glickman STEP (1) is pleased to announce that The Sweet Shop, a new multi-media, mobile art installation by New York-based artist Pratima Naithani will make its debut at the SCOPE New York Art Show from March 3 to 7, 2010.
Reinventing select vestiges from India’s vast artistic, cultural, and religious traditions within a contemporary context, The Sweet Shop is a mobile art installation that takes place throughout the exterior and interior of a refurbished school bus. The project’s premise involves using the universal language of art as a “vehicle” for sharing the artist’s perspective on vibrant aspects of Indian culture with a broad audience by taking art OUT of the gallery and INTO the streets. Open to public viewing while parked at SCOPE, the installation will also shuttle visitors between the various art fairs taking place from March 4 to 7. Additional works by the artist are also on view inside.
Four additional mixed-media depictions of Indian sweet shops from this series will be on display at the Agró/Glickman STEP (1) wall inside SCOPE, by booth F15.
